Er, no. You forgot the backhaul. That's much bigger pipes that also have to be paid for. So although your bit of fibre might do several Gb/sec on a good day, the backhaul investment will limit everyone to the 30 Mb/sec target figure (except for the Nomenklatura) because, after all, we are all equal under the new régime, aren't we?
